hght with Hwords and Dyck Is vic-
tor. Errls Boyne, secretly In French
employ, gets Dyck drunk and tries

enters the room ami stabs her
faithless husband to the heart
Dyck Is arrested on a charge of
murder He does not know if h *
killed Boyne or not Bhtlla begs
her mother to go to Dublin with
her to help Dyck. Mis. Llyn op-
poses the idea. A letter from Mrs.
L'yn's wealthy brother in America
decldei them to g<* and live with
him. Dyck refuses to enter any
plea except "No Defense." He
might have escaped by revealing
Hoyne's treachery but refuses on
Sheila's account. He is sent to
prison for eight years .Sheila
writes Dyck, assuring him of iior
belief in his inn senee. Released
after serving four years. Dyck finds
himself destitute, hi* father dead
In London Dyck receives a letter
from Sheila Inviting him to come
to America and sending money for
the voyage. He feels he cannot in
honor go to her. Dyck Joins the
Uritlsh navy as an enlisted man.
Bad conditions in the fleet result In
mutiny. Dyck, joining the muU-
neers, is chosen by them to com-
mand the ship, the Ariadne. Dis-
satisfied with the conduct of the
other ships' crews. Dyck breaks
wIt'll them and sails the Ariadne to
the West Indies. He arrives in time
to turn the tide of victory in a
battle between the French and
English fleets. Calhoun is arrested
for his part In the mutiny but
thanked by the admiral for his
work In the battle The British
government gives Dyck the free-
dom of the island of Jamaica, of
which his old enemy, Lord Mallow,
is governor. With a companion.
Dyck secures treasure worth £40,000
from a sunken Spanish ship, and
becomes a wealthy and respected
planter. Sheila comes to Jamaica.
Dyck and Sheila's mother decide
that the girl must he told all the
truth about her father's death.
Dyck tells Sheila that the man for
whose murder he was convicted
waa her father.
Mrs. Llyn was playing n hold. In- j
fleed, a reckless game. She wanted to 1
show Dyck there were others who
would interest themselves In Sheila
■even if he, Dyck. were blotted from
the equation; that the girl could look
lilgli, if her mind turned toward mar-
riage. Also she felt that Dyck should
know the facts before any one else, so
that he would not be shocked in the
future, If anything happened. Yet in
her deepest heart she wished him well.
She liked him as she had never liked
a.iy of Sheila's admirers, and if the
problem of Errls Boyne had been
solved, she would gladly have seen
him wedded to Sheila.
"What has the governor to do with
It?" he declared. "If Is your daugh-
ter's own property, and she Is free to
hold or to part with It. There is tr>
crown consent to ask, no vice-regal
Suddenly he became angry, almost
excited. Ills blood pounded In his
veins. Was this man. Mallow, to come
between his and her fate always, ev>ine
Into his problem at the most critlCfi
moment? "Hod In heaven!" he said
in a burst of passion. "Is this a bind
of the British empire or is it not?
Why should that man break in on
♦•very crisis? Why should he do this
or that—say yea or nay, give or take
away? He Is the king's representa-
tive, but he ir bound hy laws as rigid
as any that bind you or me. What

ing from the summer-house. Sheila
•with his paper In her hand. She
walked slowly and with dignity. Hut
In her face there was no summer,
there was only autumn and winter,
only the bright frost of purpose. As
she came, her mother turned as
though to leave Dyck Calhoun. She
called to her to wait, and Mrs. Llyn
stood still, anxious. As Sheila came
near she kept her eyes fixed on I.)yck.
When she reached them she held out
the paper to him.
"It Is wonderful." she said quietly,
••that which you have written, hut It
<loes not tell all; It docs not say that
you did not kill my father. You are
punished for the crime, and we must
abide by It. even though you did not
kill Krrls Boyne. It Is the law that
lias done It. and we cannot abnsli the
"We shall meet no more, then!" said
Dyck with decision.
Her lips tightened, her face puled.
"There are some things one may not
«lo, and one of them Is to be openly
your friend—at present."
He put the letter carefully away In
bis pocket. Ids hand shaking, ?Nmi
flicking an Insect from the collar of
bis coat, he said gently, yet with tin
4ilr of warning: "I have been telling
Mrs. Llyn about the Maroons up
there"—he pointed toward Trelawney
- "and I have advised your going back
to Virginia. The Maroons may rise at
uny moment, and no care is being
taken hy Lord Mallow to meet the
danger. If they rise, you, here, would
be in their way, and 1 could not guar-
antee your safety. Besides, Virginia
Is a better place—n snfer place than
this." he added with meaning.
••You wish to frighten me out of
.Tarunl n," she replied with pain In her
voice. "Well, I will not go till I have
put this place In order and brought
lisclpllne and good living here I
shall stay here In Jamaica till I have
done iny task. As for the Maroons
when the trouble cotues, I sluul not
be unprepared," tjhe smiled sadly.
"The governor may not take your ad-
vice, but I shall. And remember that
I come from a land not without its
dangers. We had red Indians and
black men there, and I can shoot."
He waved a hand abruptly and then
made a gesture—such as an ascetic
might make -of reflection, of submis-
sion. "1 shall remember every word
you have said, and every note of your
voice will be with me in all the lone-
ly years to come, flood-by—but no,
let me say this before I go: I did not
know that Erris Boyne was your fsi
ther until after lie was dead. So, If
1 killed him, It was In complete Ig
norance. 1 did not know. But we
have outlived our friendship, and n e
must put strangeness in Its place,
(iood-hy—Clod protect yon!" be added,
looking Into Sheila's eyes.
She looked at hltn with sorrow. Her
lips opened, but no words came forth,
lie passed on out of the garden, and
presently they heard his horse's hoofs
on the sand.
"He is a great gentleman," said
Her daughter's eyes were dry and
fevered. Her lips were drawn. "We
must begin the world again," she said
brokenly. Then suddenly she col-
lapsed and sank upon the ground. * My

Lord Mallow Intervenes.
Two months went by. In that time
Sheila and Dyck did not meet, though
Dyck saw her more than once in the
distance tit Kingston. Yet they had
never met since that wonderful day
at Sa'c ■ '. when they had parted, as It
might vein, forever. Dyck had had
news of her. however. f« r Darius H"

Lord Mallow was making lia.v In
Salem iilantatlon. This was no sur-
prise to Dyck. He had full Intuition
of the foray the governor would make
on Sheila, her estate and wealth.
Lord Mallow had acted with dis-
cretion ".ml yet with sufficient pas-
sion to warrant some success. He
was trying to make for himself a fu-
ture which might mean the control of
a greater colony even. If he had
wealth, that would be almost a cer-
tainty, and he counted Sheila's gold
as a guarantee of power. So, deadily
and happily, he pressed Ills suit. At
his dinner-parties he gave her first
place nearly* always, and even broke
the code controlling precedence when
Ids secretary could be overruled. Thus
Sheila was given honor when she did
not covet it, and so It was that one

Darius Beland had ti gift of saying
the right thing In the right way, and
he had said it now. The governor was
not so dense as to put this man

to the opinion of a faithful servant
and let it weigh against great men. He
luid once lost a possible fortune by
spurning a little terrier of tiie daugh-
ter of the earl of Shallow, and the
lesson had sunk deep Into his mind.

Sheila spoke without agitation of
any kind ; her face was Una and calm,
her manner composed, her voice even.
As she talked, sin* seemed to lie prob-
ing the center of a Uower which she
had caught from a basket at the win-
dow, and her whole personality was
alight and vivifying, her good temper
and spirit complete. As Mallow
looked at her, he had an overmaster-
ing desire to make her bis own—his
wife. She was worth hundreds of
thousands of pounds; she laid beauty,
ability and authority. She was the
acme of charm and good bearing.
With her he could clhab high on the
ladder of life. He t i,jht be a really
great figure iu the British world—if
she gave Iter will to help him. to hold
up his hands. It had never occurred
to him that Dyck Calhoun could be a
rival, till he had heard of Dyck's visit

Just think for a moment. Lydia E.
Pinkham s Vegetable Compound haa
been in use for nearly fifty years. It is
prepared from medicinal plants, by the
utmost pharmaceutical skill, and supe-
rior methods. The ingredients thus
combined in the Compound correct the
conditions which cause such annoving

Were All Savayes.
The notion flint all prehistoric men
were brutes and savages dies hard, a
notion which has been spread by po-

dominated would have undergone a
retrogressive social und ritelul devel-
opment and would never have attained

and spiritual, as well as to excuse
them for certain customs which have

own civilization. Altogether, the new
